[Verse:]
Limber Jack he landed on his back
Was betting on the netting when the rigging went slack
Was a moonless night, the stars were lending light
Was leering in the mirror when the road it broke right

[Chorus:]
You never really gonna know
When the whistle's gonna blow
You never really gonna know
Easy come and easy go

[Verse 2:]
He was a stand-up gent but no-one knew his bent
And all the little bones that he hid in his vent
She was the come-on queen, two along the scene
You found her in the shower, she'd been gone for seven weeks

[Chorus:]
You never really gonna know
When the whistle's gonna blow
You never really gonna know
Easy come and easy go

[Instrumental]

[Chorus:]
You never really gonna know
When the whistle's gonna blow
You never really gonna know
Easy come and easy go
